And down the street from the dealership lived the greatest 4 gear shifter that ever lived on a drag strip. No not Sox, etc. but Fox..

Who is this Fox ?? There are several 4 speed racers known to be "the greatest", but I don't recall anyone with the name of Fox ??

"When the Camaros were introduced,Fred Gibb decided to order a Royal Plum Z/28 to advertise his new performance center.To drive the car,Gibb chose Herb Fox,who had worked at Gibb's agency since 1961 and drag-raced a pretty mean '55 Chevrolet locally.On May 27, 1967,the new Camaro arrived and was officially listed in inventory as a "Demo 302 Camaro Racer."
